African American Literature and the Rise of the Antebellum City, ALA Symposium NOLA 9/10-12 (Deadline 6/28)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 10:59am
ALA Symposium on The City and American Literature New Orleans, LA September 10-12, 2015

There is a growing interest within scholarship on antebellum African American textual production that focuses on how this material shaped 19th-century cultures of print. This scholarship has examined many important areas such as African Americans' places in the plantation economy, their movements through the commercial world of Atlantic trade, and their presence in antebellum political reform movements. However, little of this work has centered on African Americans in the antebellum American city. This roundtable takes up this focus and turns its attention specifically to how these writers shaped and were shaped by the formation of the city as a locus of commercial exchange and civic activism.

Society for the Study of Southern Literature Conference Boston, March 10‐12, 2016 The South in the North

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 1:34pm
Society for the Study of Southern Literature

SSSL's meeting in Boston will be the first the organization has held in a location north of the Mason‐Dixon line. Ironically, in many ways this has never mattered less, as Southern literary studies' formative focus on regional difference and distinctiveness has been retrained to take in a broader view of the South's reciprocal material and imaginary relations with the US North, other regions, the nation, and transnational permutations of North/South dynamics.

New Mediums of Modernism: Modernism and Popular Culture- SAMLA- 6/12 Deadline

updated: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 10:48pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)

Peter Nicholls argues that modernism should not be conceived of as a large single movement but as a multiplicity of smaller undertakings that at once reinforced, contradicted, drove, and inhibited one another. These diverse submovements were united only by their shared inspiration--the emerging technologies, ideas, and events that were rapidly remaking the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
